International Artist Day that is celebrated annually on 25th October every year is to honour the contributions of artists and creative minded people. It is through the works of these communities that the world looks and remains beautiful. Today is the day to encourage, appreciate and acknowledge this fact.
International Artist Day (IAD) has been celebrated since 2004. Chris MacClure, a Canadian Artist who specializes in the style known as “Romantic Realism”, chose this day as it is Pablo Picasso’s birthday who gave the world some of the best art masterpieces. He created this day to celebrate all the ways of artists and their views on life and arts and to bring recognition to the world of art.
Creativity is something that individual possesses but not every individual brings it out in the right form. Artists have to put in a lot of hard work, their head and heart to create a work of art. They work through different mediums and fine a manifestation in Paintings, Photographs, Performance, Music, Literature etc.
How to Celebrate International Artist Day?
As Vincent Van Gogh said, “If you hear a voice within you say, ‘you cannot paint’, then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”
This International Artist Day, let the artist inside you flower.
